Hotel du Lac was a hotel and discotheque in Tunis, Tunisia, or at least I think it was. It could have been a cultist theme park, Metabolist experiment or PLO bordello, because I can’t find much data on it, in English, French or Arabic. Keep in mind that I only know French when root suffixes and prefixes are playing nice, and the extent of my Arabic knowledge is limited to “let’s go” and “where’s the pigeon?” Hence, institutionally illiterate.
Nevertheless, the shape (which style of architecture is it? winged hubris?) of Hotel du Lac is worth a mention in my mind, and even though it is off-limits to the average pedestrian, the crude angles of the façade and the openness of the surrounding area make it quite photogenic.
If you or anyone else you might not know has any information regarding this building’s actual name, date opened, date closed, or any other salient bits, please comment below!
Update: A friend of mine was doing a bit of sleuthing on German forums and found a relatively recent thread. Or, if Deutsch isn’t your thang but a young Carrie Fisher is, Tunisia and Star Wars seem to have a lot in common.
